Congratulations to another of our Student of the Month, Alfonso Marcial.
Alfonso attends EPIC de Cesar Chavez high in Riverside and has been chosen to be September's student of the month by his teacher Ms. Galia Minshew.
Alfonso attends his classes daily on time and wants to finish high school and get his diploma so he can obtain a better paying job.
Alfonso gets up at 3:00 am to go to work in Temecula as a machine operator. He leaves work and goes straight to school at night. Alfonso says attending classes everyday helps him a lot in his work and his home life, although it is difficult he is determined to finish school and get his diploma.
In addition, the required government classes are a preparation for him to take his citizenship exam.
He tells his children that education is the most important thing. Alfonso returned to school as an adult and he is a great example that it's never too late.
Alfonso says: "Si Se Puede"
